We heard good things about Spanky's on line and decided to try them for lunch. Had the fish cakes and brown bread which was one of the specials that day and the cocconut shrimp spring rolls as an appetizer. Food was tasty and quick. The clam chowder was great. My mother was not in the mood for seafood so she... More

Every year my husband and I make the trek to the Cape, and we always stop at Spanky's- at least once! It's such a great location, right on the harbor, and outside seating in the right weather makes for a delightful meal. Sure there are other fancier spots to nosh, but we love the laid back ambiance and excellent food.... More

........and the seafood platter is better than ever at Spanky's. Only once a year do I get one, and I save it for when we visit the Cape in the Fall. Not greasy, enough fish, scallops, shrimp and whole belly clams to satisfy the biggest eater in your group....... and plenty o' fries! I sometimes forget about Spanky's, but since... More

Fairly good but not up to par for the prices. Felt more like a local restaurant but with high prices. Definitely not a place for a nice diner, more for an overpriced lunch.

First restaurant I've eaten at in Hyannis and a good start. Food was pretty good as was the service with Terri being nice and chatty despite being very busy. Food was a little pricey but I would have no hesitation eating their again.

Take it from a local, Spanky's has great food with great service, views & atmosphere. The clam chowder is awesome, and the drinks are, too! All the food is fantastic, and the staff is so friendly & accommodating. It's a great place to get together with friends and family for great food & good times. I'll keep coming back!

Feeling hungry after HY-line Hyannis Harbor cruise I took a few steps to a recommended restaurant to have a entree and a glass of white wine. Took broiled scallops, meaning scallops topped with lemon and buttered crimps incl french fries some vegetable and enjoying a glass of pinot grigio. Was pretty expensive , 36 dollars, but Large Fresh about eight... More

My wife and I have been here several times throughout the years (mostly for lunch) and it has never dissapointed us. This time we came for lunch after biking 21 miles at the shining sea bike trail so we really need to get some food in us and both were in the mood for soup. My wife had the soup... More

My wife is the seafood person in the relationship and she raved about the clams here. It's a fairly typical looking, dockside shanty restaurant but the service was excellent (super fast) and the food was decent. The price was also very good.
